11th WCCT

11th World Chess Composition Tournament (WCCT)

The World Chess Composition Tournament is a long-established team event enabling composers from all over the world to compete at international level with new chess problems and studies on set themes. Ten such tournaments have been held to date, with enthusiastic worldwide participation. The 11th WCCT is now announced, and I have pleasure in inviting all countries affiliated to FIDE to register for this competition and take part in an event which promises to be even more popular and successful than its predecessors.
